The next leg was to Huatulco.

Structures along the roadside ranged from derelict to preposterous.

Night fell. The phone camera was not up to the challenge of absorbing enough light, fast enough, to make unblurred photos.

We reached Mazunte, climbed 187 steps to our hotel, settled in, went to eat, came back, unpacked, and retired. Below us was the sound of surf, the waves had a period of about fifteen seconds.

I linked the speed of my breathing to the tempo of the swells, and was soon asnore.
